Choosing a Book Title

Hi Dudes,

Ever notice how there are book titles that intrigue and book titles that bore? How do you choose your book title? Some authors take the title of their book from a sentence in the book. This can be really effective especially if you choose something that is unusual. In fact, with a little bit of thought you can actually get an intriguing title. However, it must be appropriate.

One mystery writer choose The Monkeys Raincoat as a title and this is certainly the kind of title that would catch the attention of anyone looking for a good book.

So should your title be short or long? Both can be used to good effect.

Dick Francis must be the master of short titles, but some longer titles are quite amusing especially for children's books. There's a Hippopotamus on My Roof Eating Cake is just one example.

So how do you choose your titles?

And what's your fav title, dudes?

Write it in the comments box.

till later dudes,
